Liability insurance

On our last trip down the Tenn-Tom route from Canada, we found several marinas that insisted on seeing liability insurance before renting a slip. One, on the Cumberland, wanted evidence of liability insurance before selling us diesel.Has anyone found a broker who will sell only liability insurance for a cruising vessel?
We are leaving in the fall and I don't want to carry full coverage into the Carribean.

Re: Liability insurance

Boat US and Progressive have both sold me liability only coverage. Believe you'll find a lot of companies offer the insurance if you ask them.

Re: Liability insurance

I have used these guys both for full and just liability.

They seem to be competitive.

Re: Liability insurance

We have at various times had liability coverage from both Allstate and StateFarm. Their hull and property insurance is generally not available for international travel, but they didn't used to (i.e. haven't checked with them lately) put any international restrictions on the liability.

Re: Liability insurance

Hi OP,

Gieco.All the big outfits for liability.Most do US and Canada.
Call around for quotes-just make sure quotes are "oranges and oranges"
In other words they're all quoting same.



All the Best

Re: Liability insurance

Besides liability coverage for your boat, you should also have blanket liability sufficient to protect all of your assets.
